July 24, 2008: Beat the Heat

From Boston.com, this heat beating tip from Korea.

Quote:
People swim to avoid the heat in a swimming pool in the Everland amusement park in Yongin, about 50 km (31 miles) south of Seoul


They may be cooling off, but they sure as hell ain't swimming.

Seems to me, I've seen this picture before, but can't remember where??

Beat the Heat

The fecal coliform pool replaces the fecal coliform ball pit at McDonalds

"The presence of fecal coliform bacteria in aquatic environments may indicate that the water has been contaminated with the fecal material of man or other animals." (Wiki)

"Does the water really turn purple, if you pee?"



Kolbenfresser  Thursday Jul 24 05:11 AM

Wait a minute...

I remember a pic of a pool in Tokyo...
It is actually a wave pool:

Man... Bring on the polio.



Clodfobble  Thursday Jul 24 08:03 AM

Man, with that many people, I'd require lifevests on everyone too. But I don't get the hats...



Chocolatl  Thursday Jul 24 08:11 AM

Maybe the hats are to prevent other people's flailing arms from grabbing fistfuls of hair?



sweetwater  Thursday Jul 24 08:25 AM

There's never a Snickers bar around when you really, really need one.



HungLikeJesus  Thursday Jul 24 08:29 AM

Does that one guy in the bottom of the first picture have a mouthful of water?

Or maybe he's about to .



classicman  Thursday Jul 24 08:56 AM

That does NOT look like fun.



Sheldonrs  Thursday Jul 24 09:12 AM

Bring to a boil and add vegetables. Reduce heat and let simmer for 20 minutes. Season to taste.



ZenGum  Thursday Jul 24 09:47 AM

That's not a water park! That's a street in Seoul, suddenly flooded by rising sea levels! Quick, everyone, PANIC! The end is NIGH!


[Doffs cap to Sheldon. Wonders why it took someone so long.]

It's probably just a wad of dip.

A dip wad?


glatt  Thursday Jul 24 10:25 AM

That first picture is cropped to show only the people in the wave pool in that narrow band of space where they are able to touch the bottom but still experience the wave's full force. I bet it's much less crowded off to the right where it gets deeper and a little less crowded off to the left, where it gets shallower. But I bet lots of kids are off to the left playing in the shallow end.

what's a little urine between strangers?



bbro  Thursday Jul 24 12:25 PM

That just makes me shudder. I HATE crowds. especially where strangers are touching me. I am tensing up just thinking about it! I would rather sweat.

Stranger, urine my way.


xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Jul 24 01:05 PM

That gives me a warm feeling.

OK, I know someone peed in here! Fess up!

It's common for swimming pools in the Orient to require swimming caps. The reason is that they want to keep filters from getting clogged with hair.
Sure, a couple of hairs here and there won't damage the pump/filtration system, but when you're dealing with billions of people, those hairs can add up quickly!


Scriveyn  Friday Jul 25 02:46 AM

It's dress down Friday - usually they come in suits and ties.

Off-topic question:
Who selects the image o' day and how does one go about nominating one? I'm usually content to see what image The Man comes up with, but this terrorist wedding cake caught my eye:

xoxoxoBruce  Friday Jul 25 06:53 AM

Any member can post an IOtD.
1- Follow the format for the date and title.
2- Don't use a copyrighted image from a major news group.
3- Post, rather than link, the image.
4- Have fun.



Clodfobble  Friday Jul 25 08:58 AM

Also, I'm pretty sure you'll need to look at it in Forum View instead of blog view, if you haven't already been doing that. (And hey, while you're already in handy Forum-view mode, you could branch out into the rest of the board, too.)
